The administration of anesthesia to the patient is one of the most delicate moments that may occur in the face to any medical or surgical intervention, especially in those cases in which the doses that are supplied are greater (although any intervention or procedure in which it is used could be potentially dangerous). And is that an excess of it could result in the patient to brain injury or, in the worst cases, even get to determine his own death. Could he determine if there was negligence in the administration of anesthesia? Usually in hospitals and clinics, an intense work of documentation is carried out in order to assess the conditions of the patient previously to intervention and the provision of anesthesia, performing various tests on his situation after the same, for the purpose of ensuring that this has taken place without any error that could pose a serious danger to the patient. Unfortunately, sometimes committed errors and omissions in this work of documentation, to widen the margin for the occurrence of this type of errors and failures by the Anesthesiologists. It is necessary to consider that the test in such cases, after bring a claim or lawsuit for medical negligence, presents a greater degree of complexity than in other cases.
And is that when failures occur, the patient is sedated, and in many cases, unconscious; What would prevent that you could warn of first-hand the mistake made by the medical practitioner. Damage which by its use could result in patient use of anesthesia in inadequate or excessive doses to the patient could result in:-type brain damage and paralysis. -Injuries to the nerves. -Paralysis in other areas of the body. In all cases, such damage could be avoided if the anesthetist acted diligently enough to do his job. Subjecting the patient to various tests, including allergies, and make a detailed study of the case may allow to avoid such tragic situations. When the lesion the patient already is caused (and the damage is, therefore made), this (or their relatives in the case that would have died as a result of the same) would be available in any case able to bring a claim for the damages caused by the negligent act committed at the Medical Center in which anesthesia is provided to you.
